There’s some quick players in the Premier League; but these lads are something else, and could basically all compete in next year’s sprinting World Championships.
Just to put things into perspective, Usain Bolt clocked 37.58km/hr when the Jamaican broke the 100m world-record in 9.58 seconds. And all these 10 lads have clocked under 34.77km/hr in the Premier League this season. Fair play, chaps.
But, who’s the quickest of them all?
10) Hector Bellerin – 34.77
When Bellerin caught up with Pedro in the Arsenal versus Chelsea match, we genuinely thought the Spaniard was in the wrong sport.
Amazing that he's only 10th on the list.
8=Maya Yoshida – 34.78
Been in England; on the South Coast for four years, and no-one has heard of the bloke.
Still, can't half shift for a centre-back.

8=Theo Walcott – 34.78
Theo has been flying, this season. How is the Englishman only eighth on the list?!

7) Wilfried Zaha – 34.79
Will the Palace man ever reach those high expectations of him?
The 23-year-old will certainly have to rely on his pace, if he is to get to that potential... lightening.
6) Eric Bailly – 34.84
Bloody hell the centre-half has got wheels. Just another quality outlet to the Man United man's locker.
5) Andre Gray – 34.87
Reminds us of a Gabriel Agbonlahor, when the Villa man fancies showing up on the weekend.
Scarily quick, useful on the counter, and has a goal in him.
4) Jamie Vardy – 35.10
No real surprises here. So imporant to the Englishman's game.
The combo of Vardy's pace and work-rate, means all centre-backs need to be on their toes when facing the Leicester man.
3) Kyle Walker – 35.18
Class player. Has a bit of everything in his game, including speed which has led the Spurs defender to be dubbed London's Roadrunner.
2) Lynden Gooch – 35.19
Largely unknown, as did not play a Premier League game last season.
However, featured in five this term for Sunderland, and with the midfielder's speed - the bloke has glided past some defenders already.
1) Shane Long – 35.31
Ay?! We knew the striker was rapid, but not that bloody quick.
If you were a centre-back you wouldn't want to get in a drag race with the Irishman.
